Violently gang raped when she was thirteen years old, and raped three more times before the age of eighteen, Madeleine has experienced more trauma in her life than most ever will. Living in a state of shock and self-loathing, it took her years of struggle to confront the buried memories of that first attack and begin to undo the damage it wrought, as men continued to take advantage of her fragility in the worst possible way. After many years of keeping quiet, Madeleine Black decided in September 2014, to share her story on The Forgiveness Project’s website. She recently spoke for TedX on the subject and is the author of the book Unbroken.
